Quite plainly the field is TOO SHORT barely enough to put in descriptive and meaningful text.|
If you misplaced your phone and someone picks it up then whoever picks it will need quite a bit of guidance in contacting its owner. A mere 20 bytes is presently allowed == 9 characters for name and 11 characters for number is not very helpful at all.
In this age of ultra gigabyte phone RAM sizes, i find it counter-intuitive that at least 256bytes could not be allocated for the lock screen message.
Perhaps such could be included in the next Firmware update.
